The fact that this unit blows the main fuse immediately indicates a dead short in the power supply. With a unit of this vintage, I would check the main bridge rectifier or the rectifier diodes. If you have no experience with electronics repair, a repair estimate would be in order. Figure on $50 for an accurate estimate. If it turns out to be just the rectifiers, than expect a parts bill in the $20 range.

Why the fuse burn and the car turn off , I change the fuse and the car turn on again


It sounds like a dead short somewhere in the ignition circuit or the "main" circuit. If everything else on the car dies (lights, chimes, instrument panel, etc) when that fuse blows, that would most likely be the main fuse you've identified. It's going to be a serious pain to find that short, and I'm sorry I don't have any real leads as to what it could be other than tracing the wiring back. Whatever you do, DO NOT replace the fuse with one of higher amperage... The wiring will surely melt or even worse, catch fire!

There are several fuses. All are 3AG size. On the Rectifier board you need:
F1=10 Amp 32V
F2=3/4 AMP, 250V SLO-BLOW
F3=4 Amp, 32V
F4=5 Amp, 32V
F5=20 Amp, 32V
F6=3 Amp, 32V SLO-BLOW

On the solenoid driver board you need:
F1=3/16 Amp

All the lights are not working found 2 blown fuses / replaced still not working the power lite flashes red then turns to green


When a fuse blow suspect an overload. In an amp this old it will certainly be one (or more) of the main output transistors that has shorted.

Rockford Fosgate Punch P325.1 Amp keeps blowing fuses every time I start the car. What is going on?


well if the amp works with the car off and when you start it the fuse blows then you may have alternator issues use a volt meter to check battery voltage is not above 14.5 volts
if the fuse blows when the amp turns on then most likely you have a shorted output section in the amp.

Need a fuse for Sansui stereo amp I purchased at a yard sale. Radio shack cares the fuse but doesn't know exactly which one.


Difficult question. Which Sansui amp? You could start small, say 2A, increase by 1's till it doesn't blow or if that is too expensive, 2, 5, 8, 10, 12, 15, get the idea? Just don't start big and expect it to work properly, the fuse that is, it is supposed to blow, not "let the magic smoke out".

Blows fuse when turned on


this is a normal behavior if one of the power supply transistors have blown. take the unit to an enlectronics repair. they can either change the transistors affected (usually more than one) or replace the power supply board.

Need help with my Kicker Amp


Some amplifiers don't work well if the signal source has no connection to chassis ground, This could have caused instability in the amplifier and caused it to fail.

It's also possible that the amplifier had a manufacturing defect.
